Ateacher was killed this week while out walking his dog. The deputy head teacher was walking in fields in Yorkshire when he was trampled to death by a herd of cows. In May, an 82-year-old man died from injuries while walking his dog in the Yorkshire Dales. Does make you wonder just how common these incidents are and how they happen. According to the Health & Safety Executive, members of the public are rarely killed by cows. They investigate incidents involving farmers and farm workers. Between 2015/16 and 2019/20 they investigated 142 incidents of which 22 resulted in a death. Members of the public resulted in only four of these deaths. They also investigated 65 non-fatal incidents involving cattle and members of the public. Luckily, they didn’t need to investigate my brush with a herd of cows.

There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

Rolling Stone magazine have just published their latest Top 500 Albums list. Their all-new list of the best albums ever made is full of classics and surprises with lots of arguments in the comments. Their original list was compiled in 2003 and slightly updated in 2012, but things move on. Many of today’s top musicians were not even in middle school back then. Pop over and see if you are interested you can view their list over here. Meanwhile, here on Jammy Toast, I thought we would have a go at trying to create our own list of our favourite Top Ten Albums. Especially seeing as Andreaa is away and so we can leave out Take That, Robbie Williams, and Michael Jackson. Believe me, it is more difficult than you can imagine limiting your list to just ten. Have a go yourself, but until then, here is our list…

Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit”. It has become a bit of a Jammy Toast tradition whereby we ask everyone who visits us to leave a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit, as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone’s feelings. We usually ask you to do this because we are too lazy to think of anything else to post. However, people generally enjoy the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are simple to explain – anything goes!
